The legal documents were released in 2019 and document a brewing love triangle between Donald Trump, Maples and romantic ballad singer Michael Bolton. At the time, Maples was living in the Trump Parc condo building when she “had bought singer Michael Bolton back to his room following Trump’s departure for a trip to the West Coast,” according to documents obtained by Inside edition. Donald Trump found out about the quote and in 1994 discussed the matter with vanity fair.
He admitted: “I left her. I left her like a dog,” which gave Maples plenty of room to go and chase Bolton. But Donald Trump didn’t like that idea because he hated losing. “A guy like me, a competitive guy, it’s like an affirmation that the girl has to be great because the number one singer has fallen in love with her,” he boasted. That’s when Donald Trump lured her back and married her in 1993, and Bolton was left in the dust.
